After a couple of days the flowers are dead, they’ve got pens galore gathering dust in a drawer somewhere, and then there’s the apple themed gadgets and boat load of apples. Seriously how many apples can one person eat?
What teachers want to make them feel appreciated is cash…cold hard cash. Show them the money.
These aren’t my words, but the words of my babysitter, who also has been a school teacher for the last 23 years. She said it may sound unappreciative, but it’s the truth. Times are tough. Apples aren’t going to pay her bills and unless she can pawn the nice pen you gave her so that she can get her brakes fixed, she doesn’t want that either.
I want to show my kid’s teachers that I do appreciate all that they do. It’s a job that is underestimated and so important. But NOW I’m scared to death to give my kid’s teachers anything for Teacher Appreciation Week but cash or a gift card. But with teachers, teacher aid, and music teachers it all adds up. So I’m torn…
